I recently got into the Legend of Zelda games, and I’ve always been a fan of fingerless gloves. My hands get cold when I play video games, so I started looking for something suitably game-related to make and wear. Since I didn’t find anything that was quite what I wanted, I designed these.

They’re based on the gauntlets that Link wears in OoT and in Super Smash Bros. Melee. I used references mainly from fan art and from the manga, so they might not look exactly like they do in the game, but they’re close enough for my purposes. This is the first pattern I’ve written, but I tried to make it as clear as possible. If you have any questions or comments, direct them to Emily-H on Ravelry.

Have fun!

For any non-knitters out there, I try to keep a few pairs of finished gauntlets available in my Etsy shop. Feel free to message me there if you’d like to order a pair.
